Newbie from Newbury

Hi All,

I am a new member of this site and just wanted to say hello, and also to say thanks. I’ve been looking for places to photograph with my new drone and this site (along with dronescene.co.uk) are both fantastic resources, so thank you to the people who run these sites.

I live in Newbury so I’m keen to find places to fly my drone local to me. I have a DJI Mini 3 Pro. I’m new to drones, so I’m not expert, but I think it’s amazing bit of kit and perfect for what I want.

I will post a few photos and videos in here in due course.

Out of curiosity… What platforms do people use for hosting and sharing pics and videos? I have put some stuff on Facebook and also YouTube.

Cheers,
Toby

Pictures can be uploaded directly in to a post as you’re writing it.
Links to YouTube videos can be pasted in to a post on a line of their own.
Panoee and Kuula each are each good places to upload 360° panoramas. Then you can create a post and again paste the link in on a line of its own. The Panoee developers participate here and so that’s something to recommend that platform.
FaceBook posts don’t seem so popular; there are many members here who don’t have a FaceBook account

Also: welcome!

Hi, great pictures and videos, I am also new to Drones and near Salisbury… I think all the posts like yours from “New Members” are inspirational and I just need to find some locations locally that are worth posting… rather than my garden or the local Builders Yard (which the owner kindly gave me permission to fly fly from and over!!)
Enjoy you flying time !!

https://dronescene.co.uk/ is great to find locations to fly your drone. I was looking at locations west of Newbury and found some interesting places along the A4 in Wiltshire.

Happy flying!
